I absolutely love going to this theatre - be it Joshua Bell and the Albany Symphony, a rock concert like Interpol, or even just for a movie (love to see Warren Miller on the big screen!). This is a beautiful old theatre with great sound. Haven't had a bad seat yet, but warning, there is no elevator so if stairs... More

The Palace Theatre is a great venue to see a concert or watch a movie. The acoustics there are fantastic. The theatre has been restored to its original grandeur, with its gold leaf painted ceiling. The seats are comfortable and there is plenty of parking just a block or two south of the theatre. Very enjoyable!

We are used to old historical theaters but the Palace proves it can be historic but still comfortable. The seats are very comfortable and the legroom unmatched.

This theater has all the charm of the old time theaters, lots of architectural drama. The seating is comfortable, wide & extra leg room (making it extra comfortable for tall or larger patrons). And every seat is a great seat. Their movie. Series is amazing, and for $5 admission it makes it even better.

We went and saw Theresa Caputo at this venue. It is a beautiful old building. Sure it needs a few updates specifically the bathrooms that are down a couple flights of stairs. But overall, the seats are comfortable and the theater itself is reminiscent of a beautiful old-fashioned theater. I would definitely visit this venue again. Plenty of free off... More

Attended a benefit held back stage. It offered a different perspective. Overall, over many years it is still may favorite place to listen to a concert. Recently it was given a total remodel. Highly recommend!

We recently saw Celtic Woman at the Palace, and just love the venue. The inside has hand painted murals and the most comfortable seats I have ever sat upon in a theater such as this. We parked on the street, but one can purchase parking for $10.00 at the time of ticket purchase online.
